It's a bit more manageable now with less than 20,000 cards, but when I had over 500K it was a nightmare.
    Haha lots, some were discounted others I just wanted to bust something.

    Heres how I sort

    Base: all sorted by team in a huge box

    Parallels: all sorted by type (gold medallions, cert mirror, etc) in their own box

    Inserts: all sorted by year and type in their own box

    Rcs: all sorted by year and type in their own box

    Jsy, aua, patches etc: are in the same box as the rookies is penny sleeves and top loaders

    Personal collections: have all my gerbe , ducks and random in one folder. My gf has all her galiardi, bd duals and randoms in another binder.

    It take but little room in our room as the all for nicely right between my two desks so when I file a card its pretty easy to keep them in their proper place.

    Excel spreadsheet with tabs for each year; anything with BV $1 or more or part of an insert set gets logged and valued for insurance purposes and a running total for each year and all combined is kept on a header tab.

    Actual cards are broken up by value and then by year to mirror Beckett listings (Artifacts, BAP, Beehive, etc.) for each year. Commons are in monster boxes (nine boxes). Cards $1-$5 are naked in 3200 count boxes (have five of those). Cards $5-$15 are in penny sleeves in 3200-count boxes (two of those), $15-$50 are in sleeves and top loaders in a three-row box and finally $50+ cards are in top loaders or magnetics in a modified 3200-count box. Sets are in 3200-count boxes - six or seven of those, I think.

    Decades gets its own box due to sheer volume of cards and the need to keep them all together.

    And those are just the hockey cards! My football and basketball collections are in relative disarray...

    LF this ITG Decades 1980's Autograph: AMM2 - Mark Messier CAN SP. Also need many Emblems and Numbers from ITG Decades 1980's and may need Quads, Golds or other low print runs from that set.

    to answer the original question, stacked here and there on my desk, until yesterday when I spilled my java and lost a few rc's...:/ I am now in the process of building a display case, There is some awesome carbon fiber vinyl sheets on ebay, I bought a black sheet and a gold sheet, both 48" x 24" for only $20 each. Ive used them before and they make incredible looking backdrops and are very easy to apply to wood, plywood etc...whatever you use to make your case (no bubbles at all). I will post up some pics when its done.

    Ugh, thats horrible. Hope they were no big name rookies! Just a question for everyone here, where do you get those cardboard-looking cases that hold your cards in toploaders (the ones with like the dividers in them, open topped? I know UHF had one in one of his pictures. I'd like to get two for trader cards and then another for my pc cards.
